Be the Change

Yesterday I was clever,
so I wanted to change the world.

Today I am wise,
so I am changing ....

Never Give Up

When you get into a tight place 
and everything goes against you, 
till it seems as though you could not 
hang on a minute longer,
never give up then, 
for that is just the place and time 
that the tide will turn.

Simple Philosophy

I have a simple philosophy.
Fill what's empty.
Empty what's full.
Scratch where it itches.

There is one thing you and I as parents cannot do,
nor do we want to do if we really think about it,
and that's control our children's will - that spirit that
lets them be themselves
apart from you and me.
They are not ours to possess, control, manipulate,
or even to make mind.
